MSNBC News host Joy Reid told viewers on Wednesday that they shouldn’t believe anything from law enforcement officials in regards to the fatal officer-involved shooting of Ma’Kiah Bryant on Tuesday evening in Columbus, Ohio.
NO JOKE…Joy Reid says knife fights happen all the time and people survive!
Reid's guest then condemned the actions of the police officer b/c it was "child here that was involved in an altercation with someone else."

Reid spoke of Ma’Kiah Bryant as if she were a senseless victim of police brutality, warning her audience of the horrific video they were about to see.
The MSNBC host highlighted the late Bryant’s life by sharing videos of the teen’s social media beauty tutorials, said she looked “adorable” and was “exhibiting youth and joy.”
